Assistant Director UAB Dietetic Internship &
Clinical Nutrition Graduate Program

I teach and help coordinate the clinical experiences of our dietetic interns who will be our future Registered Dietitians! I enjoy spending time with students and making a difference - what a great feeling! I also lobby on behalf of important nutrition legislation in both Montgomery and Washington DC. If I could do anything else in the world, I would love to work for the Centers for Disease Control investigating the causes of food borne illnesses - a microbial sleuth of sorts!

I am originally from Dearborn, Michigan but have lived in Birmingham for 25 years. I love the diversity of the climate and culture here in Birmingham.

When I am not working at UAB, I am often at the ballpark watching my son play on his high school team. I also enjoy entertaining and cooking.
